Today’s Friday Floor announcement will be short.
First, beginning Monday we will start convening each day at 9:00 a.m. and adjourn most days by 9:15 a.m. after checking in. All-day hearings begin on Monday and will proceed throughout February and into the first of March. I will be discussing with the committee chairs their work loads prior to deciding and announcing sometime in the near future a date for the conclusion of public hearings.
Next, I have decided to schedule the morning of Tuesday, February 16th for floor debate and have notified the committee chairs of our Tuesday committees to not schedule public hearings on that day. I intend to also schedule another morning of floor debate on Monday, March 1st, or Tuesday, March 2nd, once I discuss with our Monday and Tuesday committee chairs their work loads.
Also, a reminder to senators and legislative aides that all of the statements of intent for bills scheduled for public hearing Tuesday through Friday next week are due to the respective committees on Monday by 9:30 a.m. The statements of intent for bills scheduled for public hearing on Monday are due to the respective committees by 9:30 a.m. this morning.
And finally, the Nebraska Legislature’s website will be updated no later than noon today with the information for the public about the new options available this session for them to provide input to this body that I shared with you yesterday, including activating the link for online submission of comments for a bill.
